Our Nursery and Primary cycle
Teaching students in their dominant or first language is a key feature of the Nursery and Primary School programs. Students are therefore admitted to the language section that corresponds to their dominant language (also see Introduction to the School/ Language Instruction and Language Sections). At the European School Luxembourg II there are eight language sections.
Our Nursery School makes use of a building designed to accommodate up to 400 students starting from the age of four. Children begin their first year of Nursery School in the autumn of the calendar year in which they turn four. Because the Nursery School program lasts for two years, the classes will have mixed ages, including younger students in their first year and older students in their second year.
Our Primary School is situated in a separate building designed to accommodate up to 1050 students starting from the age of six. Students begin their first year of Primary School in the autumn of the calendar year in which they turn six. There are five years of Primary School, grades P1 to P5, within each of our eight language sections.
There is a single Adjunct Director for both the Nursery and Primary Schools together.
